I could put up with the body shape, if only it was a regular top and all in the same style. :P

I actually kinda like the shape, but they need to fire whoever came up with the idea of giving it only half a maple top. I mean really, what the ****?

I actually really like the shape, the color scheme kills it for me though.

nope, but the small part of me that's not saying, " Ewwwwwwwwwww that's gankin' " is actually wondering if it might be quite nice.

I think I'd like it more if it had a 3+3 headstock rather than the 4+2.

I think we all came to the conclusion that the shape itself is not so ugly and even somewhat fresh and daring, the thing that really makes the guitar unattractive is the bound V-maple-top.

I think it would look 100% better if they had reversed the color scheme for the quilting and the rest of the body- IOW, so that the area bounded by the "V" was not quilted, and the area outside was.

The paint job makes it look like the reverse V, a les paul, and a strat were able to produce a single offspring.

Nah, I like it even with the V maple top.

It's the headstock that ruins it.
